CharlestonBob Morse (U.S. News & World Report), Update to College of Charleston's 2016 Best Business Schools Ranking:

The College of Charleston recently advised U.S. News that it misreported data that were used in the 2016 Best Graduate Schools rankings. 

The misreported data resulted in the school's numerical rank, which U.S. News had calculated but had not published, being higher than it otherwise might have been in the 2016 Best Business Schools rankings. ...

OtThe College of Charleston advised U.S. News that it submitted an incorrect average GMAT score and an incorrect acceptance rate for its fall 2014 full-time MBA class. The school told U.S. News that its correct GMAT average was 539; it originally reported the incorrect average of 591. The school also told U.S. News that its correct acceptance rate for the fall 2014 full-time MBA class was 60 percent, not 58 percent as originally reported.
